Last Trip To Ebenezer.

We ran the waters of Ebenezer Creek for the last time this weekend.
Since mid February we have run 4 trips down this enchanting little stretch of water. You never know what you are going to run into, but it's always magnificent scenery.
Since that first trip, seen in the top picture, the water has dropped nearly 6 ft...good for fishing.
We were barley able to paddle through the Tupelo forest, but with their giant buttresses exposed, it was even more incredible. At the take out there was a veritable Effingham county beach scene going on, with red belly busters on jet skis and country gals on horseback, ringing in the fast approaching summer. With the onset of rapidly rising water and air temps the creek will soon be clogged with Duckweed and Pennywort, a variety of bugs and some frisky alligators.... maybe we'll take one more trip.
